Up scale casual dining. The lamb shank was outstanding and the Southern Bread Puddling is a must! We were made to feel welcome from the outset and topped off by server Gabrielle. Great atmosphere. Good location

It's not on the water but an intimate little restaurant with fresh food. I had the gnocchi with wild caught shrimp and then tiramisu for dessert. Very good. They have wood oven pizzas but my husband was disappointed as they didn't offer pepperoni.I

Cozy (especially on a winter's night), warm (in terms of mood) and very much in keeping with traditional pub food -- albeit with some modern twists -- this is an inventive retreat that furthers the town's impressive restaurant scene.
